Thermal and photochemical cycloaddition of 2-phenyl-3-ethoxycarbonyl-Δ2-pyrroline-4,5-dione (1) with butadiene afforded the same 1,2-adduct (2) in reglo- and stereoselective manner. At elevated temperature the 1,2-adduct (2) changed by an 1,3-sigmatropic shift into the normal Dlels-Alder adduct (3). The easiness of sigmatropy was greatly influenced by the nature of N-substituents and decreased by the following order : H > Me > Ph. In case of N-phenyl derivative, the rearrangement was not observed.
